Neymar hits back at World Cup critics

Share

Brazil started its World Cup with a 1-1 draw against Switzerland and will look to add a three-point haul when it faces Costa Rica on Friday.

That led the world's most expensive player to take to social media to explain his emotions.

The remarks seemed to have got to the PSG man, as for the game versus Costa Rica on Friday at St. Petersburg Arena, the Brazil number 10 will sport a new, cropped design.

Tite said he thought his superstar's tears were down to the huge pressure of leading the five-times world champions.

Neymar had been denied a penalty after referee Bjorn Kuipers chose to reverse his initial decision following a consultation with the video assistant.

Navas - a growing thorn in Brazil's side - pulled off even greater heroics to deny Neymar with a fingertip save soon after, while another Coutinho strike was directed straight at the goalkeeper.

The relief of sealing Brazil's first win in Russian Federation was all too visible as Neymar broke down in tears moments after tapping home Douglas Costa's cross for a 2-0 victory. And Brazil coach Tite admitted the Paris Saint-Germain star is still not fully match-fit. He is a human being, he needs some time to resume his high standard.

Costa Rica will likely try similar tactics to force the other attackers to step up.

He scored nine goals in 34 La Liga appearances which has seen the lofty midfielder become first choice in Brazil's side, and Spurs fans reacted to his performance on Twitter - asking why he could not perform the way he did at Spurs.

One point would have left Brazil in a precarious position heading in the final group game, but as it stands the Selecao have four points and are joint-top of the group.

"We deserved the win", the Barcelona player said.

With this victory, Brazil will progress to Round of 16, while Costa Rica goes back home.

Costa Rica conceded again right at the death. Coach Tite, who was watching the game from the sidelines, couldn't control himself as he ran passionately to celebrate with the players, falling dramatically, midway after a slight push from Ederson who was trying to hug him from behind.

Neymar had a running battle with the referee for most of the match.
